The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Paul L. Foster
School of Medicine Internal Medicine Interest Group was started in
2009 by the inaugural class of students led by Ms. Bailey Wilson.
In addition to being one of the first interest groups formed at
TTUHSC, it has also been one of the most popular groups, with a
large portion of the entire student body belonging to the group.
The organization is headed by a president, vice president,
secretary, and treasurer who are second-year medical students
elected annually by group members. Additionally, we have a
first-year representative who is elected by first-year group
members. It has been helpful to have leadership from both years to
make sure our meetings and activities are relevant to the two
classes and to provide continuity of leadership.
Our IMIG has had some very successful events this year. Perhaps
the most successful event was our welcome event for all new
students. During the new student orientation, joined by the
leadership of the internal medicine department at Texas Tech El
Paso, including our faculty advisor Dr. Harry 'Pete' Davis, we
sponsored a lunch for all incoming students to discuss the world of
internal medicine, encourage students to sign up for ACP
membership, and to discuss opportunities in our interest group. One
such opportunity we have been able to provide is shadowing in the
preclinical years. We have arranged a schedule with the IM
department that allows many of our students to get first-hand
exposure to work in internal medicine. We have held several
additional lunch meetings with various local internal medicine
physicians. As our curriculum is organ-system based, we have tried
to choose, with the assistance of our faculty advisor, a specialist
that matches the organ system one class is studying, which has been
well-received by the group members. We are also assisting in
organizing and putting on our second annual community health fair.
Our IMIG sponsors a booth that provides screening for diabetes,
hypertension, and obesity. We will also be providing other cancer
screening information and counseling at-risk individuals. We are
excited to be able to again provide this great service to our
Another service activity that we have begun this year is
assisting the El Paso County Medical Society with their production
of the public television program, The
El Paso Physician. This monthly program provides health
information to the community on a wide variety of topics presented
by a panel of local physicians and healthcare administrators. The
program also allows community members to call in questions for the
IMIG president, Michael Osborn (left), Jeffrey Mohlman and
Jill Mohlman answering calls on the set of The El Paso
Our interest group has set up a program to provide volunteers on
a monthly basis to answer the phones for the show, and to screen
and reply to those questions.It has been a great experience to
interact with the medical society and the community. In fact, it is
so rewarding that we have to turn away volunteers each month.
Overall, the goals of our interest group include providing
information about careers in internal medicine, serving our
community, and providing opportunities for students to socialize. I
feel that through the activities described we have been able to
fulfill those goals and have a successful interest group.
